This August we welcome the Archipelago Project to the stormy stage.
The Archipelago Project is a non-profit music education ensemble dedicated to advocating musical arts through performance, residency, and consultation.
Archipelago's mission is to educate and inspire audiences from diverse ethnic, geographic, and socioeconomic populations. Comprising the ensemble is a group of highly trained musicians from the United States, Canada, Austria and Germany.
In addition to touring the United States, Austria, Germany and Venezuela, the group is dedicated to promoting music education in public schools and performs one to two week residencies at middle schools and high schools across the United States.
Recently, Archipelago Project has performed tours and school residencies in Hartford and Stamford, Connecticut along with a school residency in Beverly Hills, Michigan. In addition, group members have developed an ongoing music education program in Traverse City, where young, talented musicians from TC area schools learn from professional musicians.
Students from the Traverse City music program will join band members on the stormy stage for an evening of New Orleans style brass band music.
Listen to the music of Archipelago Project and learn more about the group's education objectives by visiting their website.
